MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR CAT’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.

The Near Eastern wildcat is the closest relative of domestic cats. Despite years of breeding, the internal workings and eating anatomy of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain the same too.

Our Biologically Appropriate principle is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meat that nature evolved cats to eat, and exclude grains, gluten, synthetic additives, and anything else that nature didn’t intend your cat to eat.

YOUR CAT IS SPECIAL

Just like you, your cat or kitten is a unique individual and her feeding requirements will vary with breed, environment, age, and activity.

That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your cat or kitten’s weight and adjusting amounts as needed. We also recommend feeding her twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.

When switching diets, it’s important to transition your cat or kitten as it takes time for her digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in ACANA. Over a five-to-seven-day day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day seven you are feeding 100% ACANA.

† Use a standard 8-ounce measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.

ACANA FIRST FEAST  is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.

PROTEIN-PACKED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR KITTEN’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.

Your kitten is descended from the Near Eastern wildcat, making them an obligate carnivore who biologically requires a diet rich in animal protein for proper nutrition.

ACANA Cat foods mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of animal ingredients that nature has evolved modern-day cats to eat, using WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, cartilage, and bone to give your cat the essentials for a healthy life.

  • RICH IN ANIMAL INGREDIENTS (70%)

    Your kitten is built for a protein-powered diet packed with small prey animal ingredients, with their sharp teeth, single-hinge jaw, and short digestive tract. That’s why ACANA First Feast is brimming with 70% free-run chicken and whole, wild-caught herring.

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)

    One-third of the animal ingredients in First Feast are FRESH or RAW, providing nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form. Refrigeration is our only means of preserving our fresh ingredients, and our raw ingredients are flash-frozen to lock in nutrients and flavor. The other 2/3 of our animal ingredients are dried or oils, making them a rich and concentrated source of protein and healthy fat.

  • A VARIETY OF WHOLE  ANIMAL INGREDIENTS

    In nature, your kitten would learn to hunt and eat a variety of whole prey animals that provide all the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals needed for peak health. ACANA First Feast has a rich diversity of quality animal ingredients in nourishing ratios of meat, organs, cartilage, and bone, mirroring your cat’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN ANIMAL PROTEIN 

    Packed with free-run chicken and whole fish ingredients, First Feast is 100% free of gluten, potato, or tapioca. Instead, our recipes derive their rich protein from whole animal ingredients, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your cat according to their evolutionary needs.
